was 's amiable and courteous district attorney and one of 's strongest allies until threw acid in his face, hideously scarring him. It also fractured his mental state, causing him to become , a schizoid criminal mastermind obsessed with duality and the number two and is one of Batman's greatest enemies. His former good luck charm, a "two-headed" silver dollar with one side deface has been seized on as a reflection of Dent's half-scarred visage. He flips it to decide the fates of his victims. Despite Batman's efforts to reform his former ally, Dent is consumed by his fixation on chance and his crimes are designed to prove out his diametric philosophy.
Two-Face is a great Batman villain, in fact just the other day I was discussing how Batman has the greatest gallery of villains in comic book history. The amount of films you could make without repeating a villain is astounding. Two-Face was in Batman Forever, which I still find to be a fantastic Batman film. Tommy Lee Jones did a fantastic job of playing him. I have always been a fan from the comics and love the way he decides everything with the flip of a coin. He’s a great looking character as well. Half normal, half deformed with the crazy half suite outfits to match. Diamond Select has been churning out Batman statues left and right lately and now they have done it again with this masterful Two-Face statue.
Let get right to the action. The face. This is one of the most detailed pieces I have seen, and that’s saying a lot. The left half is the normal half of Harvey Dent. You can see the flesh colored paint that looks very realistic even though it’s a comic book inspired piece. Brown combed back hair with just enough etching to make is semi realistic. One eyebrow raised up with his squinted eye, which is also normal and detailed right down to the pupil. The lip is raised in a scowl and you can see the individually sculpted teeth. Even throw in a normal ear for good measure. No we look at the right side that was burned by acid and we see the horrible side so to speak. Green, almost lizard like with hundreds of little lines molded and etched in. It a dark yet still vibrant green with all the etching done in various greens and black. Notice how the eye on the deformed side is bulging out and burned as well. The mouth droops more downward showing his big teeth, and even the gums. The hair on the burned side is a dirty white, with shadings of black mixed in. Much like the left side its designed to look messy yet still combed back. You can see the split between the outfit, but before I get to that I want to point out the coin in his right hand. It’s a perfect match of the defaced side coin he flips in the comics. Having him hold that was a fantastic touch.
Here is the body. Classic style of the comic books. A grey dress suite on the left side that is very detailed for a comic style statue. You see not only all the black buttons on the jacket, but on the cuff of the shirt as well. Notice how its sculpted to be bunched up at the shoulder and down the bicep as his arm is tight and being h eld in. His shit on that side is white with a black tie. In fact the tie is the only part of the outfit that stays the same. Not when we look at the right side everything changes. It’s a purple style jacket that much like the face on that side is completely elephant skin style. Hundreds of lines, and wrinkles are sculpted in and its all shaded in black. It’s essentially a purple version of his face. His shit color on this side is orange that you can see at the neck line as well as the cuff coming from inside his jacket. The amount of detail that went into this side of the outfit is amazing. It really pops and stands out to the point it’s the first thing you notice on the piece itself.
This side shot shows you just how detailed that jacket is done. Its almost a paisley design that’s been burned in and colored black. The way it resembles the face in terms of scarring is uncanny. It is not just the jacket. You can see it’s the entire outfit. The pants match the jacket and they are done in the same amount of detail. This is a well made well designed statue. You can see the hands have stayed flesh colored and each finger is individually sculpted. Now we saw the coin in Two-Face’s right hand in the left hand is his gavel. It looks like wood. Brown, old school style but the sell point of it is the Batarang that’s sticking in the top of it. I like how they incorporated Batman closing in on Two-Face without actually having him in the piece itself. You see that element later in the piece as well. I cant praise the detail in this one enough. Even the pants are filled with wrinkles and bunched up in areas to really make it stand out.
The back shows off the contrast as well. Half scarred purple half grey normal. It looks really cool. You can see the split in the back of the dinner jacket towards the bottom. The grey is very wrinkled and it you look close you can see how its designed and sculpted to look like real cotton material. You can see the stitching throughout as well as the seam lines. The shading is fantastic especially combined with the areas that are wrinkled up. It has a fantastic real world look about it. The pants on that side as you can see are bunched up where Two-Faces knee is bent as well. Its very detailed in so many aspects. The scarred side is just amazing with the shadowing and etching. Its also wrinkled in the leg as Two-Face has his right leg bent back slightly. You can also see the hair variation. As well as the shirt. Half white collar half orange collar. Same for the hair. Half brown half grey with black. His head is tilted slightly otherwise it would be a perfect down the middle separation from head to toe.
The base is awesome to say the least. The steps of a bank I assume. You see the wrinkled up brown money bag complete with a dollar sign symbol in gold ties with a gold rope. Just like you would see in a comic book. There are little stacks of money that has obviously fallen out during the robbery. Green blocks with gold wrapping. Comic book style not made to look like real money. The steps themselves are brown. Wooden style with many variations of lines carved into them. You can see the bolts sculpted in and its all shaded in various forms of black. Now the one thing I love is you also see a few Batarang sticking to the base just like you did on the gavel. Once again you are given the impression Tw-Face has just robbed a bank and batman is there to stop him. I love the Batarang’s in the piece it really adds that classic Batman touch. It’s a very detailed base with lots of elements, but just the right amount as to never take away from the piece itself.
This is a great piece and a must have for any Batman or DC Collection. Mine sits proudly on my Batman mantel in my house right next to the Penguin. It’s a spot on match for Two-Face, and its one of the most highly detailed comic book style statues I have ever seen. This is a winner in every sense of the word. Grab one today.
